WRT Trio Wins Last-Ever LMP2 Championship with Dominant Victory
Kubica’s Redemption: Winning WEC LMP2 Title after Le Mans Defeats
In a thrilling finale at the Bahrain circuit, the WRT trio consisting of Robert Kubica, Louis Deletraz, and Rui Andrade emerged as the champions of the last-ever LMP2 championship in the World Endurance Championship (WEC). Their dominant performance throughout the season allowed them to clinch the title with an impressive 59-point lead over their closest rivals, Albert Costa, Fabio Scherer, and Jakub Smiechowski from the Inter Europol team.
Kubica, who had suffered a heartbreaking near-miss at Le Mans in 2021 due to a freak throttle sensor failure, found solace and redemption in his WEC title success. The victory not only brought him satisfaction but also brought back his smile after the disappointments at Le Mans.
The Road to Championship Glory
The WRT trio showcased their exceptional skills and determination throughout the season, paving their way to the top of the championship standings. Their consistent podium finishes and commanding performances in each race allowed them to build a significant lead over their competitors. With their unwavering focus and teamwork, they proved to be unstoppable.
As the season progressed, Kubica’s expertise behind the wheel became evident. His experience in Formula 1 and other motorsport disciplines added a touch of brilliance to the team’s overall performance. Alongside him, Deletraz and Andrade showcased their talent and contributed immensely to the team’s success.
Le Mans Heartbreak and Redemption
Le Mans, known as the ultimate test of endurance and skill, had been a cruel mistress to Kubica in 2021. Despite being a strong contender for victory, fate dealt him a harsh blow with a freak throttle sensor failure that dashed his hopes of glory.
However, the WEC title triumph proved to be a silver lining for Kubica. It not only showcased his resilience and determination but also validated his capabilities as a driver. The taste of redemption was sweet for the Polish racer, as he stood on the top step of the podium, celebrating his hard-earned championship.
A Bright Future Ahead
With their remarkable performance in the final season of LMP2, the WRT trio has left an indelible mark on the history of the WEC. Their success is a testament to their talent, hard work, and unwavering dedication.
As the curtains close on the LMP2 era, the racing world looks forward to new challenges and exciting developments in the realm of endurance racing. The WRT trio has undoubtedly set a high standard for future competitors to strive towards.
Congratulations to Robert Kubica, Louis Deletraz, Rui Andrade, and the entire WRT team for their well-deserved WEC LMP2 championship victory!
